View Full Version : [ubuntu] Toshiba Battery isnt being recognized

May 29th, 2012, 02:57 PM
I have a Toshiba Satellite L745-S4310, my battery isnt being detected by Ubuntu 12.04. I tried doing the steps from the following (http://techinterplay.com/fix-toshiba-battery-issue-linux.html) however, when I attempted to type the first command

# cat /sys/firmware/acpi/tables/DSDT > DSDT.dat

it said Permission Denied. I have tried to figure out how to FIX this battery issue, it seems to be my ONLY problem with UBUNTU, something I would love to fix so that it doesnt randomly just show up like at 43% or 15%.

Please Assist

You would have to add sudo in front of the command. This filesystem is not accessible by normal users. You will then be asked to provide your password.
